Summary
  • "America's Great War provides vivid descriptions of the famous battles, personalities, and diplomatic maneuverings, while it destroys numerous popular myths about America's role in the war. Unlike any historian before him, Zieger details how the war forever altered American politics, culture, and society, and he chronicles America's rise to prominence within the postwar world. Zieger describes how the war was directly responsible for creating the National Security State, for generating powerful new instruments of social control, for bringing about innovative labor and social welfare programs, for expanding the powers of the executive office, and for redefining civil liberties and race relations
  • Finally, Zieger persuasively argues that World War I created the current global balance of power and established the continuing primacy of globalism in American foreign policy."--Jacket
